Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Toasted oak, candied walnuts and honeysuckle dominate the nose. However, subtle floral notes lie close beneath the surface. The palate suggests more candied walnut and alludes more strongly to the floral and citrus aspects. Finishes strong with citrus overtones balanced by warm, toasted oak. (Mar 2013)
